Why Do You Need to Use PNG Image Format in Your Web Design?

The advantages of including PNG file format in website creation over the different file types like GIF and JPEG; the file type can be used to make good and wonderful icons that will prove alluring to your visitors

The PNG image format was introduced some time ago; it was put forth for consumers in 1995/96 to cover the drawbacks of the popular GIF file type. However, it did not catch on because the then browsers were not designed to support the advanced attributes of PNG so web designers and makers were compelled to include it in their designs sparingly. One of the major blocks faced by the format was Microsoft's flagship product, Internet Explorer which was by far the most famous browsers of the time; IE had little or no provision for PNG support which meant that the format could only be made use of in the most restricted way. However, the scene changed when IE7 was brought out; this fresh browser from Microsoft has proved immensely useful in increasing increasing the utility of PNGs. So here is why at three reasons why PNG is is often regarded as the best image formats around today:

You will be able to create images that can be superimposed due to their transparency or a feature called alpha transparency: When you pitch GIF against PNG, will notice that a very distinct advantage with PNG is that you can only save a particular color in a transparent format through GIF this simply means that you can get the color regardless of it being opaque or transparent with just transparency in betweenbut when you use PNG, you get a serious benefit; because the format supports semi transparent pixels. With this attribute, you can save a PNG picture with a soft drop shadow and then fuse it with a background that suits your taste. The Image can also be used as a watermark or a gradient background. The format lets you incorporate the gradual fading of shades from fully opaque to see through, so that you can see the webpage that lies in the background

They look spectacular: Not only do you get surprising flexibility when using PNG images but also; there are several other benefits to incorporating this format. For example, if you make use of the JPG Format, you lose a portion of the data from the initial image whenever the file is saved, so after a while, you will be able to view a noticeable decline in the finesse of the images. Even though, this problem has been resolved in GIF and it is possible to save the pictures without losing any details, GIF has a highly restrictive 256 color palette, which imparts it quite futile if you are going to store a picture. But, when you use PNG, you can get the best attributes of both these formats; you will be provided an extensive color display like the one used in JPEG format and it also provides managed color palette a la GIF files. Another advantage is that the compression of the picture is without loss so the picture stays put despite innumerable times of saving the file.

PNG allows for self optimization: A major concern that web designers have to tackle on a daily basis is the fact that the brightness and the contrast ratio of the screen has to be adjusted to see the pictures properly; this happens due to various Gamma setting used in monitors from different vendors. Gamma setting is a technique that helps to spread the luminance across the monitor display. However, different operating systems use varying Gamma settings. Therefore, a picture that is color corrected to suit Windows may not look right on a Mac. Again, in this scenario the versatile PNG image type comes to the rescue, in PNG, you can save the pictures with with a Gamma correction feature that is innate so regardless of the operating system; the Gamma settings will be changed on its own to show an image with the impressive ratios of contrast as well as brightness.
